Legal I guess this is what some people would call "karma". Apple may shout off the rooftops that it invented multitouch, and that anyone else using it is clearly stealing it from them - but another company has taken offence to that, and has slapped the Cupertino giant with a patent infringement suit over multitouch.

I'm glad Apple's stuff is working out so well for you...

I think I was, as they say, gilding the lilly for sarcastic effect. The main point is that when people talk about Apple being evil it just sounds silly. Saddam Hussein was evil, children molesters are evil. At best all one could say about Apple is that you don't like their products (which is fine as they are not a monopoly so you are always free to buy some other companies products) or that their corporate image irritates you.

Endless hyperbole just degrades the language and hinders communication.
